The wheels are finally coming off of Joe Biden’s lackluster campaign for President.
And with everything falling apart, Biden just got the worst news ever.
And this scandal could be the final straw that sends his campaign over the edge.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is perhaps one of the weakest Democrats to run for President in decades.
After a launch that saw him skyrocket to the top of primary opinion polls, Biden ended up watching his standing in the primary field collapse after three terrible debates, a series of gaffes on the campaign trail, and a newly resurgent Elizabeth Warren nipping at his heels in states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
And for Biden, things just went from bad to worse now that a brand new scandal exploded out into the open.
Not only is his campaign struggling with primary voters, but his new ties to Ukraine could be what does his team in should he make it to the general election to face off against President Donald Trump.
ENM News reports, “Since President Trump defeated them nearly three years ago, Democrats have warned, in increasingly alarmed terms, that Mr. Trump would once again court the interference of foreign governments to help bolster his re-election bid.”
“Now, as reports that he sought help from the Ukrainian government shake the political world, the months long leader in the primary race, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., finds himself grappling with the fallout of a still-secret whistle-blower complaint that is said to be about Mr. Trump and his dealings with Ukraine,” adds ENM News.
This is an unmitigated disaster for Joe Biden.
As a man who is trying to campaign as a simple alternative to Trump, being embroiled in his own foreign policy scandal involving Ukraine is the last thing he wants.
This comes especially after Democrats spent the last two years harping about how Trump was allegedly a Russian plant who only won the 2016 election by cheating and working with the Kremlin in Moscow to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.
There’s no way that Biden can even allude to those claims if he emerges as the nominee now.
And that’s only going to further demotivate his own Democrat base more than it already has with the prospect of supporting him in the general election.
“The new report gives Mr. Biden the one-on-one showdown with Mr. Trump that his campaign has spent months trying to create but it also exposes him and his son, Hunter Biden, to yet another round of probing questions about their moneymaking activities and personal family struggles,” adds ENM News.
Depending on how the scandal plays out, Biden’s chances of ever becoming President may collapse to zero in just a matter of weeks.
But even if Biden somehow limps his way across the finish line to become the Democrats’ nominee, he’s now seriously damaged when he goes up to face Trump in the November general election.
